EWN podcast

For over a decade, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has been working on an initiative called Engineering With Nature that uses natural processes and systems to deliver a broad range of economic, environmental, and social benefits. EWN’s expanding international community of scientists, engineers, and researchers, from multiple disciplines collaborate on how best to harness the power of nature to innovate, solve problems, and create sustainable solutions. This podcast tells their stories.

The Engineering With Nature Podcast Season 3

October 6, 2021

Season 3 of the Engineering With Nature® Podcast launches October 6. This season, our focus is on creating the future with EWN. As Todd Bridges, Lead, Engineering With Nature, United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) says, “the idea of nature-based solutions has a history that goes back many decades, but it's gained focus, credibility and energy in the last 10 years or so. It is emerging and growing and dynamic. It's exciting to be a part of that."
